CONTROVERSIAL comedian Jerry Sadowitz is bringing his 'Not For Anyone' tour to Dunfermline tomorrow (Saturday).

The stand-up, who is also a highly accomplished magician, will perform at the Alhambra Theatre with doors opening at 7pm.

Voted the “15th greatest comic on Channel 4's 100 Greatest Stand-Ups” Sadowitz returns with his whacky impressions of Greta Thunberg, Frankie Boyle and more.

He said: “Please note that I might just do card tricks and say NOTHING for a whole hour or I might just do the usual ‘screaming fascist’ schtick.

"Or both. Patrons may wish to drink alcohol pre-show to avoid boredom, embarrassment and guilt.”

Long known for his provocative material and a "willingness to say the unsayable", Sadowitz was in the news in the summer after the second night of his Edinburgh Festival Fringe show was pulled by the venue, the Pleasance.

The director, Anthony Alderson, said the content was "extreme in its racism, sexism, homophobia and misogyny" and that the comedian's material "has no place on the festival".

However the decision to cancel his gig, especially after the first night went ahead, led to a furious backlash, while comics such as Al Murray and Simon Evans rushed to back Sadowitz.

He responded: "I did a 75 minute show for 600 people that went pretty well and left with no hint of anything going wrong.

"In addition to now being told there were multiple walkouts and 'abuse of staff' my act is now being cheapened and simplified as unsafe, homophobic, misogynistic and racist."

Sadowitz had continued: "A lot of thought goes into my shows and while I don't always get it right, especially at the speed of which I speak, and I don't always agree with my own conclusions, I am offended by those who, having never seen me before, hear words being shouted in the first five minutes before storming out without listening to the material which I am stupid enough to believe is funny, sometimes important and worth saying."

The controversy won't have done him any harm either with the publicity garnered likely to have added a few ticket sales for the tour, which is the most extensive he has undertaken in Scotland.

Tickets cost £22.50 and are available from the box office in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre, by calling 01383 733666 or online via
